WLC Engineering & Surveying and Team Receive Award of Merit for NCHS Renovations
WLC Engineering & Surveying, and team members, received Engineering News Record’s Mountain State’s Award of Merit for the Natrona County High School Historic Renovations. WLC was hired by Bassetti Architects to provide civil engineering services for the Natrona County High School (NCHS) expansion and rehabilitation. The original 1927 building was remodeled while the remainder of the existing building was demolished and rebuilt. WLC either designed the relocated utilities or coordinated the relocation. We also provided the easement exhibits and legal descriptions for all of the utilities. WLC also prepared the site grading and drainage system design. The campus expanded to the west where the NCSD purchased properties between Oak and Spruce Streets and Collins Drive and CY Avenue. Increasing the impermeable surface area required that a storm water detention area be established. With a limited area and the need for as many parking spaces as possible, WLC opted to design an underground storm water detention facility. This facility is designed to store 5,300 cubic-feet CF of excess runoff. The storage capacity is provided by a manifold of 36” RCP pipes and an 18” outlet to the public storm sewer system in Oak Street.
